She went forth...

I've been playing with my stash from the Ally Pally show.  Most of the products used here are from PaperArtsy including the hanging itself.  The main image was stamped on Crackly Tissue and coloured on both the reverse and the front with Fresco Acrylic Paints.  The hanging has some stencilling on the left hand side and was then painted with more Fresco paints. The shells were stamped on card coloured with Distress Inks.  Both the main image, shells and words are covered in beeswax.  I had right fun adhering the main image to the hanging.  I ended up using a mixture of all sorts of glues/glazes and beeswax lol.  


The words just popped into my head and seemed appropriate.  I thought afterwards I should have used the stamp that came with the plate and it would then have said "She went TRUE NORTH with the wind in her sales." lol

There are no hangings left in stock Carol, I think between us we bought them all - lol.

Great quote and love how you've used the crackly tissue with the image - perfect.
